Interact & Network LIVE Wherever You Are

Tuesday, December 12 | 2:00-4:00 PM 


Working with technology, you are certainly familiar with “first-mover advantage.” Well, professionally and personally, this is what 2023 is presenting to CIOs and technology leaders worldwide! So many trends that we have watched for years are coalescing – the digitization of business processes, the criticality of digital leadership within our organizations, and the governance imperative to brief the C-suite and the board of directors regarding an organization’s state of digital readiness — as we confront an unsettled economy that is driving yet another major iteration of new information technology imperatives.

Join us as we explore both the leadership and technology landscapes, and provide useful operational guidance for seizing the opportunities for maturing our cloud capabilities, data management, and C-suite participation; and the rising challenges before us including the talent gaps, the never-ending security gaps, and the disconnected technology initiatives across many of our organizations.   

You’ll get the full benefits of our Face-2-Face events – what TechTalk is known for – networking while learning about the most cutting edge technologies in an engaging environment. Meet and speak with our sponsors, the companies you need to know on the cutting edge of technology, get specific information for your applications and arrange follow-up.

Our partners at IDC are constantly working to bring current, relevant data that CIOs need. Join the conversation to ensure that the insights we bring you are useful & applicable in your work scenarios.
